Ian Potter Foundation Children's Garden
Mo to Fr from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM,Sa to Su from 09:30 AM to 05:00 PMImaginations spring to life in this garden developed especially for children. Snuggled into a fenced-off corner of Melbourne's Royal Botanic Gardens, the garden provides a fantasy-like landscape to explore. Young adventurers can climb the lookout tower, scramble through plant tunnels, discover ruins in a rain forest grotto, and float leaf boats downstream by the wetlands pond. Many of the garden's plants have been chosen for their fairy-tale shapes, such as pygmy trees with bottle-shaped trunks. Children's activities are held regularly, including plant crafts and theatrical performances.
